Hemihypertrophy, also known as hemihyperplasia, is a rare disease in which one side or one part of the body shows an overgrowth compared to the other, due to excessive cell production that causes asymmetry in both sides. For example, an overgrowth can occur at only one part of the body, such as the legs. However, it can include many different areas of the body, including face, tongue, and arm.

Cause of Hemihypertrophy

The exact cause of hemihyperplasia is not known. But it could possibly be hereditary, run in families. Genetics appears to play a role, but the genes that cause Hemihypertrophy may vary from person to person. When it occurs by itself, it is known as isolated Hemihypertrophy. It is also known as congenital overgrowth disorder and can be seen in Beckwith-Wiedemann Syndrome (BWS), Russell-Silver syndrome or another congenital syndrome. Children with hemihypertrophy have an increased risk of developing tumors, especially in the abdomen.

Symptoms of Hemihypertrophy

The most common and observable symptom of hemihypertrophy is that one side of the body part is larger than the other side such that one side of the face or one arm or leg appears larger than the other.

Children with hemihypertrophy usually have a normal lifespan and intelligence and ability to live a happy and successful life. Most children with hemihypertrophy grow up like a healthy adult. By adolescence, the condition gets normal and reduce the risk of developing tumors. Rarely, some adults have physical and intellectual disabilities.
